New products now online!

I have finally had a chance to photograph and list a large number (75!) of my new products - brooches, rings, studs, earrings, cuff links, magnets and three styles of necklaces, ranging in price from only $12 to $34.

This range is a little different to everything I've done before - I've embraced my geo-loving side and started to use paint (mainly gold) to accentuate the beautiful Japanese papers. I love them and I hope you do too!

Check out the full range in my Felt Shop.

Supporting local talent - Rust+Stardust

It's not often I come across a pair of creative people that are doing things that are amazing and wonderful and I want to support them with everything I've got.... But Rust & Stardust... wow.
"As indie designers, maintaining authenticity and producing high-quality work with constant, tough production restrictions - location, volume, budget and even ethics - is an ongoing struggle. Outsourcing, especially overseas, requires too many compromises. We don't want to compromise anymore; we want to do everything, and do it in an awesome way.
Our mission at Rust & Stardust is ambitious but simple: we want to champion skilled craftsmanship, use fresh materials, create great designs and high end products, and have a hand in every step of the process. We are all about staying fiercely independent, self-sufficient, and being DIY in the most sophisticated sense of the term."

As they say, in order to make large-scale (awesome) products, they need a large-scale setup. They need funds, and you can get some neat things by supporting them. Check out their PledgeMe campaign so I can get the cushion I really want, or check out their blog with more information on the rewards. Be quick though - they need to reach their goal by 8pm on Monday!
